    They need to put that in something larger than mice type that stays on
    the screen longer than 5 seconds. Also, be upfront that their PCS
    network is not complete coverage in many areas.

    A grand total of heavy roaming for consecutive months twice. My
    travel schedule picks up significantly in the spring, and I'm on the
    road pretty much all the time. Each spring, for two years, based on
    what you folks are saying, I came very close to hitting that 51% for
    two consecutive months.
